Abstract: This study compares the discounted cash flow approach and ohlson 95 methods. In theory discounted cash flow and ohlson95 approaches are equal, hence this study detects whether it is possible to astute that one approach has a privilege to the other form. The two valuation models are analytically compared. This study presents that if users present uncomplicated hypotheses in their valuation, they present prejudices in their corporation value estimations. Finally, due to the fact that framework for predicting is usually on the basis of accrual accounting and also the budget control is most of the time on the basis of accounting numbers rather than cash flow numbers, it is probable that corporation value estimation on the basis of accrual accounting conceptions and financial statement analysis is more concisely than the later.
